Holy Day Events - Honouring our Past and sharing with our community through Prayer, Fellowship, and Artistic Expression
Join us in celebrating and commemorating important events in the history of our Faith and our community.
The Bahá'í Community of Milton celebrates and commemorates events in the history of our Faith. Each event reflects the spirit of the occasion, and is often complimented by devotionals, music, artistic presentations, children's activities, refreshments, and social time.
